UPM Raflatac has announced the qualification of more than 30 labelstocks for EFI's digital Jetrion industrial inkjet systems, including the 4000, 4830 and 4900 series of UV inkjet presses.
“UPM Raflatac is pleased to partner with EFI to offer labelstock converters and their customers a complete digital printing solution,” says Patrick Goss, prime business director, Americas, UPM Raflatac. “Printers can leverage UPM Raflatac labelstocks and EFI Jetrion machines to provide end users with the broadest range of options for their digital printing needs.”
“EFI and UPM Raflatac share a commitment to delivering high quality labeling solutions that offer productivity, efficiency and value,” says Sean Skelly, general manager of EFI Jetrion. “UPM Raflatac paper and film labelstocks open up a world of printing possibilities for our rapidly growing installed base of label converters who gain business benefits from Jetrion’s economic ink-only printing cost and favorable ROI.”
According to a statment relased by UPM Raflatac, label converters who use both UPM Raflatac labelstocks and EFI Jetrion UV inkjet systems gain access to a host of digital benefits, including a diverse range of labelstocks that provide exceptional visual appeal and performance for demanding end-uses. EFI’s presses allow converters to offer short- and medium-run printing capabilities that are ideal for product launches, targeted marketing campaigns and boutique labeling operations. Labelstock converters pay only for the inks they use, which the company says can significantly reduce production costs. EFI’s presses range from the 4000, which offers an economical entry point into digital label printing, to the 4900, which executes digital printing and finishing in a single pass.
